The amount of the pension awarded to public officers is determined by the number of continuous months of employment and the annual salary at the time of retirement. Officers may take the maximum (full) pension for their months of service, in which case they will not receive the lump sum gratuity. However, officers may opt to take a reduced pension of 75% of their maximum (full) pension, and in this case they would receive a lump sum gratuity equal to 25% of their maximum (full) pension multiplied by ten (10). The Benefits and Awards described below are for Public Officers who qualify for benefits under The Pensions Act, Chapter 43 of the Statute Laws of The Bahamas.
